where do the ducks go when the pond freezes over??? who takes care of them?
I should be preparing for lit ap test but just reminiscing about those junior year feels and angst in literature and selves. junior year was such a FULL year in brain activity, action, new things, feels, etc. this year is so…. strange. everything seems more faded this year, there’s less of a feeling of engagement with all that I am doing, maybe because it’s all ending soon. I hope vividness remains in the future!
jane eyre has been one of my favorite books for a long time
(for many of the reasons/aspects talked about in this video - although the vid can’t go intensely in depth of course). there are spoilers so don’t watch if you haven’t read it.
those who criticize the novel because they “don’t like jane” or think she’s weak or something… how can you!!!! she is anything but- and though her decisions may sometimes be baffling the human experience is so intense and somehow everything touches a chord/thoughts are thoughts you know and understand even if the circumstances are very different and that is what makes the book… the “soul-speaking” ness of it
